OUR COLLECTIONS

The Tioga Point Museum was founded in 1895 by Louise Welles Murray, archaeologist and historian, to give a permanent home to the wealth of history, archaeology, and the art and artifacts of world cultures here in Athens, Pennsylvania.   Often described as " A museum of a museum", this one hundred and twenty year old institution houses a unique and exciting "collection of collections" of local people who traveled the world and gifted our community with eclectic and beautiful  examples of Native American, Japanese, Chinese, Turkish, Polynesian, Micronesian, European and Middle Eastern art, objects and books.
